A140 is deployed globally and has earned a reputation for high performance, security and ultra-reliability. Stylish and compact, this field-proven HD device enables you to deliver a seamless entertainment experience that combines live, on-demand and OTT services across a wide range of network environments.

The A140 is complemented by an extensive range of set-top-box middleware, browsers, conditional access and DRM options. All STB functions can be controlled from a browser using the Amino JMACX system.

High definition

Flat-panel TVs have rapidly evolved in recent years from standard definition to HD Ready and now Full HD. The A140 can decode resolutions up to 1080i 60Hz but is also able to de-interlace content and display it progressively - such as de-interlacing 1080i to 1080p - to deliver the picture quality your customers expect on their high-end LCD and Plasma TVs.

Advanced CODEC Support

The support of low bitrate advanced video codecs provides operators with the opportunity to grow revenue generating services, while maximising the efficient use of network bandwidth, creating the ability to:
Reach a greater number of subscribers
Increase the number of interactive and multicast channels
Enhance viewing experience with HD channels.


The A140 is a very compact STB, but is able to deliver high performance, along with the required connectivity including; analogue AV, HDMI, USB & S/PDIF. The unique Amino styling sits elegantly with any latest top-specification AV equipment in the living room.
Extensive ecosystem support
The A140 is supported by an extensive ecosystem of middleware, browser, conditional access and DRM options required for the widely varying configurations of the IPTV market.

Comprehensive design tools and support

Amino software technology is based on open standards such as Linux and HTML. Application developers for the A140 benefit from the Amino JMACX system which enables full control of the STB functions from the browser. JMACX provides the service operator with a powerful set of HTML and JavaScript extensions which allow simple and highly effective user interface designs to be created or ported. For increased flexibility in creating custom applications ADKs and SDKs are also available.

Software updates and maintenance

The A140 holds a complete software image in on-board flash memory, and is also designed to support secure bootstrap from a multicast server. At any time, a deployed A140 can be upgraded with a new software image via the secure multicast server. The multicast approach ensures that very large numbers of deployed set-top boxes can be upgraded without placing an individual load on the server or the network. For security, software images can be signed with keys unique to each deployment.#
